Editorial Reviews

<p> “Really enjoyed <i>Iron Annie and A Long Journey</i>. A real “can’t put down – page turner” In fact I am re reading it a second time. It is so good!” --Vicki Siemon, Mitchell, ON<p><p> “I absolutely loved reading <i>Iron Annie and A Long Journey</i>. Never did I think of what the German residents were going through, and how with their love and faith helped them to live. Please read this book, you will not be disappointed. I have already started to read it again.” --Brenda Reis, Chesley, ON<p> <p> “Iron Annie is an honest account of an average German family’s bone-chilling survival around the time of WWII. Although the journey is eye-opening, brutal and heart-wrenching at times, the steadfast love of a father is so inspiring; it makes you wish you had known him. Well written, Lisa.” --L.D. Stauth, Author of A Campground Mystery Series, including <i> Stormy Lake </i> and <i> Lake of the Cross </i> <p>?<p> “A true page-turner--Hutchison knows how to create a great balance between human interaction and historical information. The events engage the reader; causing them to wonder at the unfairness of war and its ravages. Iron Annie's journey preserves humanity above-all and through life; during a time of inhuman atrocities.” --R.L. Read, Former National Awards Chair, Canadian Authors Association<p> <p>“What a stunning book! I cried, I laughed, I held my breath. I could not wait to finish it and then I read it again. Congratulations on a magnificently written story. Everyone needs to have parents like Albert and Charlotte!” --Monique Devenyi, Hungary<p>?<p> “An absolute must read! I wish that my parents would have told me more about their lives, I might have understood them better. Ms. Hutchison seamlessly goes back and forth between history and personal lives with a pleasant and easy to read style.” --Herbert Stollmeyer, Retired School Teacher, Berlin, Germany<p>  <p> “Lisa has taken the readers back to a slice of history most of us can only imagine, back to a time of struggle for her family, and recorded it for posterity, making sure that no one ever forgets... <i>Iron Annie and A Long Journey</i> is a powerful read.” --Deb Elligson, Brodhagen, ON<p> <p> “Thank you for writing <i>Iron Annie and A Long Journey</i>. I was enchanted and engulfed in emotions from the first page to the last… [It is] truly needed in our present world.” --Paula Seymour, Stoney Creek, ON<p> <p>“<i>Iron Annie and A Long Journey</i> is a true page turner which is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!
